At the end of August, Secretary General of UCLG-Eurasia Rasikh Sagitov paid a working visit to Mongolia, where he met with President of the Mongolian Association of Local Authorities (MALA) Sundui Batbold.
The development of MALA in the international arena and the participation of Mongolian cities in UCLG-Eurasia’s activities were discussed. In particular, the issue of localizing the Sustainable Development Goals was raised, and the agreement on holding a learning seminar on the SDGs for local governments of Mongolia was reached.
In addition, Rasikh Sagitov met with First Deputy Mayor of Ulaanbaatar Jigjisuren Sandagsuren. The parties discussed prospects of cooperation.
Mongolia plays an important role in developing the Eurasia region, and the representation of interests of Mongolian municipalities is one of the UCLG-Eurasia’s priorities.
